My Approach to Helping

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in South Carolina as well as Georgia. I enjoy working with individuals who struggle with life issues. I have the compassion and desire to see people’s lives changed through education, individual and group counseling as well as personal inner healing. I’ve had the privilege of witnessing those changes take place. I have extensive training and experience in providing evidence-based therapy to individuals who have experienced horrific traumas in their life. Research shows the leading cause of substance abuse and addiction is based in trauma, therefore, the modalities I utilize daily will assist individuals in understanding the root of their addiction and overcome it. I have a strong background in addiction counseling to include sex addiction, PTSD, crisis counseling, sexual abuse counseling, issues of anxiety and depression. I understand the implications and setbacks such disorders can cause. I am fully committed and determined to counsel and educate individuals facing such setbacks as I believe every person, if given the proper tools, knowledge and resources, can find a path to their own personal healing and success.

More Info About My Practice

I am able to provide video counseling to those in Georgia and South Carolina. Picture it, counseling in the privacy of your own home, office, or wherever you have internet capability.
